Walk for CaRE
On September 23 under sunny skies and the beautiful setting of the Enola Low Grade Rail Trail, 40 people and 1 dog walked a 5K or a 1.2 marathon to help cancer survivors at the Y on their road to recovery.
Many thanks to walk organizer and Y member Dale Groff, and the Y members and friends who came out for the event. A special “shout out” to the members of the Lancaster Family YMCA Lancaster Lightning swim team and their families who cancelled their practice on Saturday so they could walk. Coach Gwyn Atkinson said, “Multiple families involved with our team have lost friends and family members to cancer or know people who are battling the disease. This was a great team activity and great way to show our support for people in the CaRE program and the Y.”
$1400 was raised to ate through this event and we’re still accepting donations.
